New Year's Eve Berlin
New Year’s Eve 2008: We watched the show on the TV at the Brandenberg Gate and saw a few highlights from Moscow, etc, but the most amazing thing was the fireworks. They were absolutely everywhere! We moved from our front balcony to the back terrace to watch the fireworks in all directions. They were coming from across the street directly toward us, from the balcony of the apartment on the corner of our building over the building into our courtyard and in all quarters of the city around us. I tried to take photos, but without a tripod they weren’t very good. And the fireworks kept coming until about 2 am. It was pretty cool.
